Clinical Trials

TxBDC has published seven clinical trials since our founding in 2012.

PTSD

Researchers from Baylor Scott & White Research Institute and the Texas Biomedical Device Center at The University of Texas at Dallas have teamed up to assess if implanted vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) can make Prolonged Exposure Therapy (a psychological treatment) more tolerable and effective for reducing symptom severity in participants with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Targeted Plasticity Therapy

Mark, a 34-year-old army veteran, was one of 60 people who participated in the TPT clinical safety trial for Tinnitus. He suffers from a constant, high-pitched ringing that he describes as a teapot shrieking in his head, as a result of an explosion in battle.

Tinnitus

We are not currently running any clinical trials for tinnitus. TxBDC conducted initial research and development into the VNS therapy for Tinnitus; after which one of our partner companies, MicroTransponder, further developed the technology and brought the treatment to clinical trials.

Further information regarding Tinnitus and VNS therapy can be found on MicroTransponder’s website.
